'Venetiaville' a Ravishing Riverfront Estate

Resting amidst the pristine landscapes of the Hawkesbury Valley, 'Venetiaville' is an iconic estate that stretches across 43 sprawling acres, painting a serene backdrop of river vistas and lush park-like grounds. Considered one of the region's most coveted properties, it's a testament to luxury, history, and design.

At the heart of this grand estate is the main residence, an 1890s sandstone marvel intertwined with a modern extension by the eminent architect Timothy Moon. Upon entry, the original structure showcases two elegant bedrooms, a spacious TV lounge, and a home office or library. Each space is graced with French doors, unveiling a generous wraparound verandah.

The grandeur intensifies as you transition through a glass breezeway, introducing the master wing - a sanctuary featuring a stone-finished ensuite adorned with a freestanding tub and a spacious walk-in wardrobe. Venturing deeper reveals the gourmet kitchen with thick stone benchtops, a large island bench, and an adjoining butler's pantry, together with the airy living-dining space graced with lofty ceilings, a majestic fireplace, and glass walls framing exquisite garden scenes.

This indoor opulence is mirrored outside, with extensive terraces ideal for alfresco moments and a sublime solar-heated infinity pool. From these elevated spaces, one can relish the visual splendour of meticulously designed gardens, rolling lawns, established trees, and a citrus orchard.

And yet, the magnificence doesn't end there. A renovated three-bedroom cottage, reminiscent of a classic weatherboard, offers additional accommodation. Adjacent to the main home, a self-contained studio beckons with potential uses, from a guest suite to an artist's retreat. Moreover, the timber barn, with a vast loft and workshop, accentuates the estate's versatility, ready for both practical and imaginative ventures.

Despite its sweet serenity, Venetiaville is a mere 1.5-hour drive from Sydney CBD, surrounded by boating facilities, hiking paths, equestrian trails, and the historic Windsor village. This golden opportunity presents discerning buyers with the best of both worlds.
